'Those Who Said No' won The Golden Nymph Award at the Monte-Carlo Festival de Television!
‘Those Who Said No’ is a story about the search for justice and closure after what is known as “The Bloody Decade” in Iran.
The film examines the fallout of a fatwah issued by Ayatollah Khomeini in 1988, which ordered the execution of all political prisoners. The perpetrators of the massacre have never been prosecuted.
In 2013, a group of courageous Iranians worked to bring these crimes to light. The film follows the course of the Iran Tribunal in The Hague Court of Justice, interspersing these moments with personal narratives about survival, resilience, and the quest for justice. By weaving together these two tales, 'Those Who Said No' makes a powerful statement about the act of bearing witness.
